Lego Record Store Day 2018

Lego has been part of my life for over many years, thanks to a forward looking Grandmother who bought me one of the very early sets, and it is heartening to see how the brand has weathered the vagaries of children’s changing interests and come out the other side.

I also follow the Lego developers site, on which aspiring designers submit their own models in the hope of getting enough support for the company just to consider putting it into full production (it is archived on the site https://ideas.lego.com/projects/79034).
This cute record shop interior (above) sadly failed to reach the magic support number, but is great fun. Designer Ryan Howeter says he based it roughly on a store called Twist and Shout in Denver, but it could be any indie store.
Needless to say as well as models there is a big scene in recreating classic sleeves using Lego figures and bricks out there, this one of Pulp’s Hardcore amused me! I also like the take on Deep Purple’s Made In Japan.
